The Advantages of Working with Godoy Medical Forensics.

Doctors often come across as arrogant or use terms and concepts that the jury doesn’t understand. In the nursing curriculum, there is a strong emphasis on patient education. This transfers easily to testimony on complicated medical concepts. Nurses have the ability to educate the jury at a level they can understand and are more humble than their doctor counterparts.

It may seem like you can hire any medical expert witness, but having an expert who understands the differences between criminal and civil law makes a difference!

We learned early on that what criminal attorneys need to know about medical records is vastly different from what civil attorneys do! We have experts with experience in both civil and criminal law and apply our knowledge to every case.

A nurse can explain everything you need to know in the medical records. All of our nurses have an emergency, trauma, or critical care background. These specialty units are where the best nurses converge because of the challenges they face, including having to know about every system in our body. This knowledge allows them to do a holistic review of the medical records in the case.

We work with prosecutors, defense and plaintiff’s attorneys and strive to help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your case. Our ability to look at the cases from both sides is a benefit to you! We educate and provide thoughts about the facts of the case, and our opinions are backed by both peer-reviewed literature and our extensive clinical experience. We want to make sure you are prepared for whatever comes your way when you walk into court.

Our reports are designed for attorneys to be able to understand the medical records and the related science, while at the same time providing a professional opinion. Our expert reports are easily understood by non-medical professionals. We include references to the records and attach the relevant pages to the report for quick access and reference.

For some cases, having a doctor ready to testify is crucial. In many other cases, however, it’s an expense that may not be necessary. Our nurses are knowledgeable and professional and are ready to testify at lower rates than most doctors.
